The Porch – Before and During

The farmhouse had just about zero curb appeal when we drove up and feel in love with the pasture.


Before: Are you underwhelmed?

Once we decided this was the place for us. We started brainstorming how to improve the house. The first obvious choice was to jazz up the porch. Because we also overhauled the inside layout, the front door moved, we replace the original metal windows with new and bigger vinyl windows, and the roof got a facelift.

The photos below document where we are today.




During. Notice the plastic covered screen porch… home sweet home.



We still need to construct and install the handrails, and the steps will be larger. I expect that will happen during the next warmish spell. Then we’ll be done with the porch building until spring.

I don’t know about you, but I think it looks 110 percent better.
